What transfer case fluid should I use?

The best way to determine which transfer case fluid is correct for your application is to reference your vehicles owner’s manual. Using the appendix, locate the section under oils, fluids, transmission fluid, transfer case fluid, or lubrication. Here you will find the recommended transfer case fluid quality specification or part number recommended by the vehicle manufacturer. Use this transmission fluid quality specification or part number (Example: BMW DTF-1 83222409710, 83222397244, 83220306816 or Land Rover LR003137 BOT 118 Plus, IYK500010, ATF TF-0753) in our Blauparts.com website search field.

Not all owner’s manuals reference which transfer case fluids are required for the vehicle. Most domestic and import vehicle manufacturers will specify the transfer case fluids required for servicing it in the owner’s manual. Most European vehicle manufacturers will not mention what type of transfer case fluid part number or spec you will need. If your owner’s manual makes no mention of the fluid type, please proceed as follows.

If you are still having difficulty determining what type of transfer case fluids to use, you may wish to use our blauparts.com search by model to confirm the correct transfer case fluids for your specific model. Most European applications are up to date. On the product you will find the ‘Vehicle Fitment’ tab. Confirm the specific year, make, model, engine, and other details are specific to your exact vehicle.

If you do not see a specific fluid listed for your vehicle on our website, we recommend contacting a dealership parts department for your vehicle make and model. You can request the OE part number for the correct transfer case fluid needed for changing it on your vehicle. If you can provide us with an exact OE part number this can greatly improve the efficiency of finding you the correct transfer case fluid. With the part number your dealer provided you can now enter it in our Blauparts.com website search field.

If you do not see a specific fluid listed for your vehicle, please contact our customer support department and we should be able to supply you with the correct transfer case fluid for your transfer case application.
